DENVER (AP) - A Colorado Springs man accused of burning his soldier wife with boiling water, whipping her with a cable and strangling her into unconsciousness has pleaded guilty to six counts of assault.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1ulQDgv ) 29-year-old Mitchell Gibson entered his plea Thursday and faces up to 60 years in prison when he is sentenced in May.

Prosecutors say the abuse began while Gibson was dating his future wife and throughout the four years of their marriage. Jacqueline Gibson, a Fort Carson soldier, was repeatedly treated for broken bones including a broken jaw. But she never reported the abuse until March 25 after her husband allegedly choked her and threatened to kill her daughter.

Prosecutors say she had not gone to law enforcement before but sought medical treatment many times. The couple lived together at Fort Carson.
